Samba TNG-2.5 and NT Server tools

The corresponding unix user exists in my /etc/passwd, and I've put him in 
the domainusers UNIX group and mapped it do "Domain Users". Then I try to 
add the user to the sam database with user manager for domains and I get a 
"access denied" error when I am another domain admin other than root. If I 
try it when I am root I get a error about the user already existing in a 
group. I've mapped root to "Administrator" and put him in the "Domain 
Admins" group.

thank you.
